March 1 to May 10 No class on March 15 Wednesdays | 6 to 7pm Queensbury Campus What is Balancé Barre? A trendy, new and effective group fitness class like no other, barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet, yoga and Pilates. The ballet barre (or chairs) are used as props to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training. Isometric training is holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles and engage in high reps of small range-of-motion movements. You will feel the burn! The major benefits of barre are improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased flexibility, reduced stress and improved balance and stability. The class is perfect for all fitness levels—from beginners to those who already work out. Leave class feeling challenged and invigorated! You'll start with a warm up and sequence of upper-body exercises using free weights, push-ups, planks and other moves to target the biceps, triceps, chest and back muscles. Next, you'll use the ballet barre (or chair) and your own body weight for resistance to focus on the legs, thighs and seat muscles. Your core will be engaged the entire class and then targeted at the end with a series of mat-based abdominal exercises. For the cool down, you'll complete a series of stretches to increase flexibility and allow your muscles to recover. Plié, relevé and tendu your way to better health! Look and feel your best with Balancé Barre! Participants should bring a light set of hand weights, a mat and a water bottle. Class is typically done barefoot, but you may wish to bring socks with sticky tread on the bottom for traction. Are you a member of Blue Shield of NENY?
